"Hysteria" as written by and Collen/savage/allen/elliott/lange/clark....
Out of touch, out of reach, yeah
You could try to get closer to me
I'm in luck, I'm in deep, yeah
Hypnotized, I'm shakin' to my knees
I gotta know tonight
If you're alone tonight
Can't stop this feeling
Can't stop this fight

Oh, I get hysterical, hysteria
Oh can you feel it, do you believe it?
It's such a magical mysteria
When you get that feelin', better start believin'
'Cause it's a miracle, oh say you will, ooh babe
Hysteria when you're near

Out of me, into you yeah
You could hide it's just a one way street
Oh, I believe I'm in you, yeah
Open wide, that's right, dream me off my feet
Oh, believe in me

I gotta know tonight
If you're alone tonight
Can't stop this feeling
Can't stop this fire

Oh, I get hysterical, hysteria
Oh can you feel it, do you believe it?
It's such a magical mysteria
When you get that feelin', better start believin'
'Cause it's a miracle, oh say you will
Ooh babe
Hysteria when you're near
Come on

I gotta know tonight
If you're alone tonight
Can't stop this feeling
Can't stop this fire

Oh, I get hysterical, hysteria
Oh can you feel it, do you believe it?
It's such a magical mysteria
When you get that feelin', better start believin'

'Cause it's a miracle, oh say you will, ooh babe
Oh can you feel it, ooh babe when you're near
Oh, I get hysterical, hysterical, hysteria, hysteria
Oh can you feel it, you better believe it, start belivin'
Good it's a miracle
Oh say you will, oh babe
Say you will
Get closer to me, get closer baby
Baby, closer, (closer) get closer (get closer), closer to me

    General CommentI agree with masterofpuppets80. This is a song about a girl who drives the guy crazy because he wants her so bad.

    That's why he's "gotta know tonight, if you're alone tonight." He'd go even more batty if he knew she was with someone else.

    He's pouring his soul out to this girl.

    General Commenthe sees a girl and he wants to have her so bad. man i can't even begin to count how many times this has happened to me. i mean hey its happened to all of us right?

    soft song, but it hits hard. Joe is a fucking killer singer. i heard that on def leppard's website this was rated as their best song in a survey. that tells you something doesn't it?

    General CommentThis is probably my new favorite def leppard song. Everything about it is so incredible. From the beat, the the singers voice, to the very wonderful lyrics. I mean come one, how many of us could actually write lyrics like these?

    General CommentThis was the very first Def Leppard song that I ever heard, I instantly fell in love with it. It doesn't get as much attention as it probably should as it is in the shadow of some of the other singles off of the Hysteria CD
